Our Academy


One more Summer Academy…? The Academy organizes master classes and concerts for more then eight years already. It started as Vila Bled Music Forum and Benjamin Izmajlov along with Alexander Kagan were its founders. Since then, lots of world known musicians had given lectures and concerts (N. Gutman, M. Yashvili, R. Simovich, A. Buzlov, A. Kagan etc.). It was led by Benjamin Izmajlov, violnist and professor as well. We have therefore grown up. Because of the ever growing demand for classes and concert halls, we've moved to the neraby beautiful town of Radovljica with its majestic Baroque Mansion where the Music school is located. We invited also a new professor, the russian Opera singer Ljuba Kazarnovskaya and with great success established The Slovenian Summer Academy of music in 2012. Along with many other internationally know professors are music family is growing every year! They will give to the young musicians much more, than technique, interpretation, style, etc…: During the lessons and in private talk the young artists will learn about the deep understanding of the music, about the back ground of each music piece, especially the importance of the human voice - violin, as these two instruments are so similar to each other and both can learn from each other. Join the Festival - Concerts and the final Gala round of the program of the "Slovenian Summer Academy of Music". Welcome!
